Our Top Christmas Movies…

Home Alone 

Home Alone Confessions of an irish mammy

It needs no introduction does it? In fact, none of these movies do! Surely everyone, EVERYONE, has seen – and loves – Home Alone? I don’t even know if I want to know any different.. It’s a Christmas classic that we can’t get enough of.

Home Alone 2

If anything, even better than the first one. Marv makes me LOL regularly in this one. Cheesy but hilarious! We always giggle no matter how many times we’ve seen it.

The Muppet Christmas Carol

Admittedly, it’s me who loves this more so than the kids. I’ve watched this every year for as long as I can remember. It’s the music in it that I love the most. The kids have yet to take to this one properly and add it to their Christmas must watches. For me, it was my Christmas Eve movie. That’s been replaced now by the next movie… 

The Polar Express

and I don’t mind one bit because The Polar Express is magical. If you haven’t seen it or your kids haven’t seen it, watch it. It’s just lovely. It’s now our Christmas Eve movie for the third year and it fills me with pure excitement for Christmas! 

Arthur Christmas

This is relatively new to us. I think last year might have been our first time to watch it. It’s brilliant and the kids loved it and watched it over and over.

Miracle On 34th Street

Like The Muppet Christmas Carol, this one is more me than the kids. I mean, the part where the officer opens the window and shouts “CASE CLOSED. SANTA CLAUS WINS!” and the whole City erupts! You’ve cried every time at that bit! You HAVE to have cried! 

The Santa Clause 1, 2 & 3.

We absolutely love The Santa Clause movies! All 3 of them are probably our most watched Christmas movies. They’re just so much fun and each one is just as good, if not better, than the last. Complete feel good, happy, fun Christmas movies.



How could you not love Elf! It wouldn’t be the kids first choice but they definitely enjoy it. Again, I’m a big Christmas softie and it doesn’t take much to make me teary eyed even with Elf!

“The best way to spread Christmas cheer is to sing loud for all to hear!” 

Happy watching this Christmas 🙂

    I rarely drop remarks, but i did a few searching and wound up here
    Our Top Christmas Movies… – Confessions Of An Irish Mammy.

    And I actually do have a few questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be simply me or does it look like some of the responses come across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors?
    😛 And, if you are writing on other online sites, I’d like
    to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could
    you list of all of all your community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or
    twitter feed?
